The Church is One
Alexei S. Khomiakov
One of the most unusual and provocative treatments of a theological subject ever penned. Despite its brevity, this little book provides a solid statement of the nature of the Church, perhaps one of the best in print, in several short chapters: Unity of the Church; The Visible and Invisible Church; The Church on Earth; One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic; Scripture and Tradition; Confession, Prayer and Deeds; The Creed; The Church and Its Mysteries; Salvation; and Unity of Orthodoxy. For those many continually searching for a good “catechism”, this little volume may be an answer to prayer.
